As much as we love glasses—and helping people mix up their style with great looking eyewear—we understand that some days it's nice to be free from frames. Maybe you want to swim, ski, or just give your eyes a little breathing room, so to speak.
Photochromic lenses have been around since the 1960s, but the difference in today's technology compared to what it used to be is, well, night and day.
Eyeglasses should be updated every one to two years, but many people keep glasses way past their optical prime. Often, it's the high cost of eye doctors' frames and lenses that keep people from making a switch. We aren't picking on the good doctors, but purchasing eyewear through them is roughly four times higher than you need to pay. While you ponder the possibilities of what you could do with those hundreds of dollars you could save, we'll be over here keeping prices low so everyone can get the eyewear they deserve.
